LOL Seen that one a few times. I like how they commit to an auction without actually having a car. And it's in 7 days. Oh, and the car they get ends up not having a nice enough paint job. Really?

I agree that Pawn Stars and American Picker are entertaining. I watch both regulary. I have watched both American Guns and Sons of Guns once or twice. That was enough for me. I get to see "stupid" at work everyday. I deal with the public. I have no interest in watching it on TV.

I guess they're used to cranking out a car every couple days for an auction. Sometimes they only make a $1000 off a car or even lose money, so it's hard to make payroll when you have several guys on the crew. $1000 won't cover expenses.

I guess they really rely on the big scores that happen every once and a while. I think the auctions are totally real. Fast n Loud somehow comes across as a bit less scripted too. It's got a pickers, restoration and auction thing going on all wrapped up in a defferent cool hot rod every show.

They stage that for "dramatic" poise of the show. Still some cool cars.

The Chinese lady who runs the body shop is a stitch. She needs a

bigger part in the show. My favorite part is when she's rippin' on the

guys.

"They kwazee! How I do dat in a day?

It take at least a week! Kwazee guyz!!"

She cracks me up, all scripted btw. If we all wrote in believe you me they'll give her her own show.

My favorite part of American Guns is when the owner takes a helicopter to clients houses to buy guns. He actually pulled out 50k in cash and a few gold bars for someone's collection ....... I looked at my wife and said "really......". Give me a break

This strikes me as one of the least fake parts of the show. They're in Colorado with all those mountains, a chopper may be the best/quickest way to get there. Also, you must have heard the saying, "Cash talks."? The only drawback to that is the $10K tax reporting requirement. And if someone wanted to pay me in gold bars, I'd be al for it.

What I get a kick out of is how people want shows like this to be more "real". How the hell are you going to have anything "real" in a gun shop, when you walk in and there are 4 video cameras filming you from every angle unannounced?

Yea the tax thing would suck but if he broke the sale down to individual firearms then nothing would be over $10,000 and they might get around the tax somehow. I dont know if thats actually how its done or the exact law on the tax so dont take this as how it works.
